Frank Zappa plays Francesco Zappa, and it's no joke. An obscure, (perhaps rightly so) Italian Baroque composer is resurrected and synthesized by music's king of the macabre. Two of Italy's leading younger composers, Piero Milesi and Pierluigi Castellano, add a more modern sound, and film composers Antonio Breschi and Ennio Morricone prove that Italian music can draw on many sources.
